ring on laughing gull

Post by Theo Muusse » Mon Jan 06, 2014 3:20 pm

7 years ago I saw 2 ringed laughing gulls on Aruba.
Up till now I did not receive info from Euring.
Both rings were of the Washington series.
Can anybody help?

Cheers, Theo Muusse

Hi Theo,

try this instead;

https://www.pwrc.usgs.gov/bbl/bblretrv/index.cfm

I reported a Ring-Billed Gull we observed in Milwaukee, Wisconsin in september 2012 here, and was amazed to get the ringing details within minutes to my e-mail! Late on a Saturday evening.... If all the details are correct it seems like they have a system that get the ringing data automatically. Fantastic :)

The gull was ringed 5 years earlier near Chicago, so not very exciting. But that they still use alumium rings for them was bizarr.

Cheers,

Morten

Thanx again, Morten!

It works great!

FYI: both birds have been ringed on Aruba, the oldest is a 3rd cy.
